Busy Week

We have had an extremely busy week.  It is amazing how First grade homework can take up so much time, especially when you have a stubborn mom and a stubborn First grader.  I hope we make it through this year in one piece!  We start soccer practice with our new team tomorrow.  It should be an interesting season.  I am sure we will have plenty of pictures to post on the blog!  For now here are some I took last weekend.  Trying to get these two girls to sit still was a royal pain - it is amazing we got any cute pictures!

Most of the pictures were like this - neither one looking

Pool Time Pics

Just some random pool pictures taken the other week.  The girls love to jump off the ledge and also have Daddy throw them.  Daddy is the fun one in the pool as you can tell from the pictures below.  It has been so hot here that our pool feels almost a little too warm!

Our Favorite Pizza Joint

Whenever people come to visit we almost always take them to our favorite pizza joint - Oregano's.  Good food and beverages.  The girls love it too and request it every time we go out.  We try to make it there each time Grandpa and Grandma visit.

Recap - First Day of First Grade

The results are in - Chatty loved First Grade!  Good thing!  She had great day and even came home with homework.  She has to read with a parent for 20 minutes each school night as part of her homework.  We did great for the first 15 minutes then it turned into a battle of the wills!  This should be interesting!  Here are a few more pictures from this morning.

You can see they both lost several teeth over summer

I know it is amazing - two posts in one day!  I am sure I will be back to my attempt at once a week starting next week!

First Day of First Grade

It is hard to believe but Chatty started 1st grade today.  She is growing up so fast - exciting and sad at the same time.  She was so excited for her first day.  One of her closest friends is in her class and a couple boys from her K class are in her class too (I think one of them is sweet on her).  She also got to ride the bus to school today and received some cash from the Tooth Fairy (she lost another tooth up top).  It was a great way to start out a new school year!

All ready for 1st Grade

Me and my baby!

Before we know it we will be sending her off to college!  Oh my!

Grandparents Galore

Grandma and Grandpa came for a visit last week.  As usual the girls loved having them here and were so sad to see them leave.  One night during their visit, we had Nana and Poppa over for dinner.  Talk about a grandparent overload - the girls were in heaven!

I haven't had a chance to download the other pictures from their visit.  Hopefully I will get to that over the weekend.  I am in Minneapolis for work this week - can you say hot and humid?  You betcha!  Have a good week!!
